Remove the disk-drive from the computer, and connect it as a "slave" disk-drive on some other UBUNTU computer. Then, you can copy all mom's files to your computer. Then, put the disk-drive back into mom's computer, and reinstall UBUNTU, and copy all her files (over your private network) back to her computer.

ok first prep. we need to configure your router. to do that we need your compaq laptop directly connected to the dlink via ethernet cable. after securing the connection, try to open a browser, whether internet explorer or mozilla firefox. go to the address bar and type in, it would ask you now for a username. username is " admin " password is " password " if it wont let you in, try "admin" for password. if it still cant, try to live it blank and just click on login. it would take you now to the dlink router page. there you can configure your wireless connection and set your network name. make sure to click apply settings after configuring it. then try to check your wireless connectivity again. this should work.
